    I just finished using fusable batting for the first time...MISTAKE! Some of the glue oozed through the back of the sandwich and now is a hard, dried on, glue blob on the back of the quilt. No problem, right? The instructions for the batting said it washes right out. NOT TRUE!!! Does anyone have a solution for this problem??? I'm willing to try anything! I tried heating it back up with the iron to get it to stick to another pice of fabric (read on another site), soaking it, re-washing it...I'm open to suggestions because I really don't want this to be ruined!!

    Not sure.. but someone will be along that can offer some ideas. never had the glue come through the back or top of a quilt, when i did use the fusable batting..i have only used it on a few baby quilts, mostly wallhangings.
    you didn't throw it in the dryer yet did you?

    OH my golly. :cry: I am sorry to hear that. I've used that batting before and wasn't happy with it. I know people that swear by it. I have not had that much of a problem with it just didn't like it.
    I am sorry I can't help but wanted to reply to this so I can see what others say. :roll:

    oh Yeah, right into the dryer it went!!! I didn't notice that it was glue until it came out the other end stiff as a board!! I thought it was a bit of water from steam off the iron...ugh!

    I didn't care for the fusible batting either. I didn't care for the stiffness. You might call your dry cleaners and see if they have a solution.

    Is it random spots? Big areas?
    Would you be able to hand sew on some appliques to cover them up?

    what brand was it?? i use Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 fusible. sometimes when i open the pkg there might be a piece of glue glob which i remove. it's not supposed to be there. the fusible is "in" the batting. no oozing. so sorry that happened hon.
    you might contact the maker and ask them what to do.

    I really hope a drycleaner has a safe method of removing this glue, but if all else fails - you might try Goo Gone. I have never put it on fabric but I just read the bottle and it says it can be used on clothing, carpet, upholstery. It is used to remove tar, glue, stickers, gum, etc... Goo Gone is oily - just to let you know. I bought it at Wal Mart in with the general cleaning supplies. I think they also stock it in the automotive dept. Good Luck.
